It seems I'm about to break my painting focus assumed over the last month. On August 24th we leave for three weeks in Germany and then a week in England. Having visited both countries before I have a good idea of what is in store generally, but each visit brings something new to my life. Travel offers much inspiration for my art. While I never create work while travelling (not even sketching) I take numerous photos. They often end up in mixed media work as image transfers or when sorted at a later date they provide new themes to explore. Every major trip I've taken in the last ten years has resulted in subtle changes in my thinking about the work I create. I can never predict beforehand how I will be affected, but I know I will be. It's like Christmas. You know you'll get a gift but you don't know what. I'm looking forward to a fall of interesting blogging.
Ready to eat it all up!
